Welcome to the website of Berean Bible Church, Sandy UT!
Please come and join us for worship and instruction in God’s Word!
We believe that the Bible is the Word of God (2 Timothy 3:16-17; 2 Peter 1:21). And therefore it is the pattern of life for every believer and every church. We believe that it is powerful to transform the lives of those who hear it, read it, study it, memorize it, meditate on it and obey it (Hebrews 4:12; Psalm 1:1-3). Through the accurate teaching of the Bible, souls can be saved (2Timothy 3:15) and believers can be strengthened in their faith so as to be able to overcome all trials and obstacles of life and ministry (2 Timothy 3:16-17). So it is our goal to understand it correctly and to teach it accurately (2 Timothy 2:15). We invite you to come and join us, as we explore God’s word and seek to put it into practice.
The Bible teaches that the most important relationship in a person’s life is their relationship to God.
Mark 8:36 For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul?
